  1. Here's mine, though I don't remember having changed anything in there: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GeneratePStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>npci=0x3000 darkwake=0</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>2</string> <key>UseKernelCache</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> </plist> This is the geekbench score I get with my setup: http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench2/941376
  2. As for the hangs, there are posts further up from folks who have similar issues, maybe there is something that can point you to some kind of solution. I use two external screens via digital out from my docking station and did not have any graphic problem whatsoever in either 10.7 or 10.8.
  3. try replacing the hd3000 kexts with the one provided in the 1st post no clue, sorry. It just worked for me
  4. Great news, I have working sleep in Mountain Lion! 1. execute from terminal 2. Install the attached kext SleepEnabler.kext.10.7.x-10.8.zip
  5. The internal display works fine with the patched kext provided in the first post (they are for lion but do the job in ml just as good). QE and CL both work without problems, and the internal display is at its full 1600x900. Display on displayport works fine, too
  6. Thanks, I'll try to take a closer look at it on the weekend can't follow you here, but the kext from http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=1384 did the trick for me - battery indicator now works as expected; battery information is also shown correctly in system profiler. So only sleep left until we're golden
  7. Now that the new kernel sources are out http://opensource.apple.com/release/mac-os-x-108/, could someone with a deeper knowledge comment on if it would be doable and feasable to bring 32 bit kext support back to ml?
  8. A slight update: Manwe's patched AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext for Lion seems to work flawlessly in Mountain Lion. Only things that are missing now are - sleep - battery indicator as always, any hints are more than welcome
  9. Does anyone have a hint for me how to patch the power management kexts in 10.8? Thanks
  10. there is a guide on macrumours that has more details and explains what is working and what not
  11. Has anyone tried to update to 10.8 (possibly as described at http://www.tonymacx8...l-based-pc.html) yet? Update 1: I installed Mountain Lion as described by the guide (fresh install), I just had to add the mbr patch to the usb stick after the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] ran thru. After the installation I ran ###### as per first post here using Manwe's DSDT and installed the patched AppleHDA.kext by Joshhh. I did not attempt to patch powermanagement kext so far (running on NullCPUPowerManagement, so no sleep) and voodoobattery doesn't work, but apart from that it's running great. I use the T420 as a workstation with dock and two external monitors, so this definitly does the trick for me. Will test later, if the internal display works (without patching). Update 2: Internal display shows the login inscreen in correct resolution, but turns white (with mouse pointer visible) after login. Will try later with the patched kext for lion Cheers, crumpo
  12. Not sure if a 32 bit kernel will do the trick or they removed 32 bit support completely in ML. In regards to new video drivers, I reckon that this is highly unlikely. Look at the virtualization section, they have been struggeling for years to get a driver w qe/ci support and are nowhere near. afaik there is no single video driver in the wild that comes from the community, and you won't see anything from either apple or intel here
  13. thanks, this will hopefully breath some extended life into my late 2006 macbook (just doing xcode development, no media stuff)
  14. Hey, this might be a bit of a long shot, but did you try to downgrade your bios (as mentioned in the 1st post)? I'm on 1.33 (83ET63WW) now and my system runs very stable. With newer BIOSes I experienced lots of artifacts and stuttering. Interesting...could you give some details how you managed to update to 10.7.4? Others seem to have had trouble w/networking. thanks
  15. Thanks for posting this, there is also a post that should help us get the cardreader working: http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=102098&start=111 If I find the time, I'll give it a spin next weekend.
  16. Yep, I can confirm this. Just had a skype call using an (aftermarket) iphone headset. Apart from networking (does neither ethernet nor wifi work or is it just ethernet?) does anything else give you trouble (with the restored kexts?) Thanks
  17. Audio works great with your DSDT, but only internal speakers and headphone jack. Internal microphone and microphone via headphone jack don't work. I only have AppleHDA. Do I need to patch it as per Joshhh's instructions? Also I can confirm that eSata works flawlessly. Thanks a lot for all the work you put into that - you made OSX a daily driver on my T420! UPDATE: I just ran Joshhh's script and now all the audio-ports work as expected
  18. Awesome. any chance you could include Joshhh's patch in the DSDT you have posted at some time? I'm not as tech savy myself when it comes to DSDT hacking - tried it and my machine didn't boot to a gui anymore...chances are good that I did something stupid on the way And your config seems to be pretty close to mine. Also I played with the connector configuration, but found out, that if I leave the dock connectors in, the GUI will stutter every now and then. My solution is to use your patched kext for when I'm on the road and the one that came with OSX when I'm working from home and my T420 is tucked away in the dock. On a sidenote: Has anyone updated to 10.7.4 so far? Are there any caveats? Thanks, Crumpo
  19. Does this need a new DSTD or AppleHDA.kext? If so, could you please attach it here? Thanks, Crumpo
  20. Fantastic guide, got everything working as in the first post. One thing though, the AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB that came with 10.7.3 combo update works fine for my configuration, both digital outputs in the dock work (Displayport and DVI). With your patched version, the digital ports on the dock don't work. Thanks again, crumpo

    DSDT Patches for T420

    Thank you for sharing this with us!
  22. Here is a link to a thread that deals with the T420: (it's Chinese so you may want to use google translate if your Chinese is a little rusty One noob question though - are the posted dsdts supposed to work with an i7 configuration, too (i7-2620m here) or do they need extra patches? - I have tried both madl0n's and the one from the first thread and my machine goes to sleep doesn't wake wake up. Thanks!
  23. Hi, I finally found a VoodooHDA kext that doesn't crash on startup for me, great! Also I found a wifi dongle that works for me with the Aeronet drivers I did that but it still doesn't work. After I patched AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement and deleted the NullCPU kext, I'd get CMOS errors on resume. I then applied madl0n's RTC patch which fixed that BUT it still does not wake up from sleep. When I hit FN+F4 or select Sleep from the menu, the screen gets blank, I have some harddisk activity and the machine finally sleeps. When I try to wake it up vis the fingerprint sensor or the power button, the machine comes to life a little, there is harddisk and fan activity, but the screen remains blank and the power light continues to fade in and out. The machine doesn't ract to keyboard or mouse actions. At that point, I have no choice but to force power off by holding the power button for a few secs. Just for the record, I am using madl0n's dsdt and I have an i7-2620m if that makes any difference. I'm gratefule for any help at this point...thanks!
  24. Hi Zenith, great work! Thank you!
  25. I'll give that a spin, right now I have tried to work on several issues and the machine became dog-slow after rebooting, not sure what happened here and hope I don't have to start from scratch here... Well kinda...it goes to sleep but doesn't wake up... Ok same here. I just thought that the virtual HT cores should show up as "physical" cores .
